Can Chiropractic Treatment Help You Lose Weight?

Family Chiropractor & Weight Loss Treatments in Albany, NY

Weight Loss & Chiropractic Treatment in Albany, NY | Jay L. Rugoff D.C.

The relationship between weight loss & chiropractic treatment.

When we’re not feeling our best physically, it’s only natural to not want to move around much. After all, if moving is just going to cause pain, then why even bother? Of course, this cycle of inactivity tends to lead to weight gain. The certainty of whether weight gain causes back pain or vice versa has yet to be determined, but the two are correlated.

So can chiropractic treatment for chronic back pain really serve as an effective treatment for weight loss?

Chiropractic and back pain treatments can temporarily offer you relief from your chronic pain, which can allow you to exercise more frequently and comfortably with a greater range of motion.

More effective exercise like this, when paired with a healthy diet and an effective weight loss treatment plan, can lead to weight loss. In turn, this weight loss can lead to less pain in general. Adjustments can also rid your body of adipose tissues, or fat, which lead to better muscle tone.This improvement in muscle tone will make it more difficult for your body to put on excess weight.

Finally, back pain adjustments from a family chiropractor can remove misalignments in your spine, which can also bring relief and make exercising easier. A better, more effective range of motion can make your workout more efficient, making it easier for you to exercise and get moving on a regular basis.

While chiropractic treatments to help back pain may not directly lead to weight loss, they can absolutely set the course in motion.

If you are feeling frustrated because your chronic back pain does not allow you to exercise properly, which has led you to gain weight, give our office a call to schedule a consultation. Jay L Rugoff can administer chiropractic treatment for back and neck pain, and get you set up on a weight loss treatment plan to help you get started on improving your quality of life today!

 

 


Healing Hands Newsletter- February 2018

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands Newsletter- February 2018

“Healing Hands”

Dr. Rugoff’s February Newsletter for Patients and Friends

 

Who Needs A Hug?

Dear Patient,

“Brothers don’t shake hands…Brothers gotta’ HUG!”, or so goes the famous line from one Tommy Boy.  Haven’t seen that movie? I recommend it. I favor comedies over any other Genre. I thought this would be fitting with the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.  Don’t forget to reach out to someone who is alone. A smile, a sincere greeting and yes, maybe a hug, if appropriate can make someone’s day. You would be surprised! With all of the candies, roses, chocolates and deliciousness that will be going around during this one day holiday, I came across this…

Valentines Day… is of course February 14th. Here are some interesting facts for you to ponder this coming Valentine’s Day.

  •  Every year around 1 billion Valentine cards are sent across. After Christmas it’s the single largest seasonal card-sending occasion.
  •   Teachers receive the most Valentine’s Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, and then, sweethearts.
  •   Children between ages 6 to 10 exchange more than 650 million Valentine’s cards with teachers, classmates, and family members.
  •   Of the 73% of people who buy Valentine’s Day flowers are men, while only 27 percent are women.

 

In the Middle Ages young men and women drew the names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned on their sleeves for one week. This was done so that it becomes easy for other people to know your true feelings. This was known as “to wear your heart on your sleeve”.

Valentine’s Quotes

 

The Eskimos had fifty-two names for snow because it was important to them: there ought to be as many for love.”   Margaret Atwood

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. ~Albert Einstein

Many are the stars I see, but in my eye no star like thee. ~English saying used on poesy rings

Interesting Quote

   “Happiness is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day. The secret of success is constancy to purpose.”

 Now for your… COOL Facts

  • If you keep your eyes open by force, they will pop out.
  • The “sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick” is said to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language.
  • If you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib. If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in your head or neck and die.
  • Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months, two rats could have over a million descendants.
  • Wearing headphones for just an hour will increase the bacteria in your ear by 700 times.
  • If the government has no knowledge of aliens, then why does Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations, implemented on July 16, 1969, make it illegal for U.S. citizens to have any contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles?
  • In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.
  • The cigarette lighter was invented before the match.
  • Thirty-five percent of the people who use personal ads for dating are already married.
  • A duck’s quack doesn’t echo anywhere, and no one knows why.

 

Did You Know This About Animals?

  • Domestic cats purr at about 26 cycles per second, the same frequency as an idling diesel engine.
  • Sharks are immune to almost all known diseases.
  • Since we’re on the subject, sharks and rays also share the same kind of skin: instead of scales, they have small tooth-like spikes called denticles. The spikes are “so sharp” that shark skin has long been used as sandpaper.
  • Animals also are either right-handed or left-handed. Polar bears are left-handed – and so is Kermit the Frog.
  • There are 701 types of pure breed dogs. There are about 54 million dogs in the US, and Paris is said to have more dogs than people.
  • Some bird species, usually flightless birds, have only a lower eyelid, whereas pigeons use upper and lower lids to blink.
  • Since we’re into eyelids in this issue, fish and insects do not have eyelids – their eyes are protected by a hardened lens.
  • Flatfish (halibut, flounder, turbot, and sole) hatch like any other “normal” fish. As they grow, they turn sideways and one eye moves around so they have two eyes on the side that faces UP.
  • Measured in straight flight, the spine-tailed swift is the fastest bird. It flies 106 mph (170 km/h). Second fastest is the Frigate, which reaches 94 mph (150 km/h). That’s fast for a bird of any stature.
  • Millions of trees are accidentally planted by squirrels who bury nuts and then forget where they hid them. lol
  • There are more than 150 million sheep in Australia, a nation of 21 million people.

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

   Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip.  After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. He says, “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.” Watson looks up and says, “I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes.” “And what do you deduce from that?” asks Holmes.

   Watson ponders that for a minute.  He then says, “Well, Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets Holmes. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.  Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. But what does it tell you, Holmes?” Holmes is silent for a moment. “Watson, you idiot!” he says.  “Someone has stolen our tent! You can see the stars.”

LOWER Your Blood Pressure Naturally…

*******

   Want to know one of the best ways to prevent heart attacks and strokes? Keep your blood pressure in check but do that without medication. 65 million people already have hypertension—and 20 million people are teetering on the brink so if you’re one of them or you know someone that has high blood pressure, share this information with them..

Taking a daily 1,000 mg dose of Olive-leaf extract can help reverse the problem, and can lower your reading by as much as nine points in eight weeks, a new study suggests. Together, two of olive leaf’s active compounds—oleuropein and oleanic acid—have the power to relax slightly tight blood vessels. IMPORTANT: Always monitor your blood pressure. I suggest you get it checked at the office at least once a month while you’re here for your appointment.

You can also normalize your blood pressure by eating more fiber. File this under fantastic: Simply eating a high-fiber diet can help get your blood pressure under control—often in as little as one month—by stopping blood sugar from soaring to harmful levels!

How much do you need: 15 grams daily. Get it by eating two to three cups of fresh produce, plus a serving of beans. You can take a shortcut by taking two heaping tablespoons of a soluble fiber supplement plus eat two apples daily.

Oh and get serious with sesame oil. If nothing else seems to make a dent in your blood pressure, sesame oil might do the trick. One study found that when people with severe hypertension took just 1 oz. daily, their blood pressure plunged 32 points in just two months. The researchers’ best guess why: Sesame oils polyunsaturated fatty acids and sesamin team up to dilate blood vessel walls, preventing pressure spikes. And on top of all of this make sure you’re spine is checked. If you have misalignments that don’t hurt, they can still cause blood pressure issues.

*******

Cold Weather Does Things

You Don’t Want To Happen

If you go to the doctor and your blood pressure is UP, remember this. Tis the season to check your blood pressure: Studies show that ‘cold’ weather can cause sudden spikes in your blood pressure. Forget this and you may be on medication you don’t need.

Fight Colds and Flu Naturally

Vitamin D is not just for dieters… Whether you’re trying to slim down or not, it’s a good idea to pop a good whole food organic vitamin D supplement, say scientists from Yale. They recently found that folks with the highest levels of vitamin D had a 50% lower risk of developing upper respiratory infections, like colds and flu; Danish researchers believe that vitamin D boosts production of a protein that attacks infections. Though the RDA is 200 IU to 400 IU a day, many experts believe a higher dose is advised.

Healing Hands Newsletter – January 2018

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands Newsletter – January 2018

Dear Patients and Friends,

I’m writing you this newsletter from the comfort of my home. I love being home with family but I also know that you are important to me. I make it my mission to improve the lives of those around me. I am determined to make 2018, the best year ever for you and me both. I want to also express my gratitude to you for being my patient. I appreciate your trust in me and your loyalty.

   We joke about resolutions and honestly, after about a week or so, we forget about them. Just look at the gyms in January. By March they are half empty again.  If you are serious, write down a goal, read it every day, over and over. Write out a plan of how you can achieve it. If you keep it in your conscious stream daily, your brain will act on it. Have a few specific action steps written out. You will find, all the little actions and decisions you make subconsciously, will move you towards that goal. Do this and you will see by next year, you will have achieved your goal. It’s not hard; it just takes persistence and repetition.

I want to also remind you about your health and how special your body is. Here are some fun facts to show you some of the marvelous things the body can do.

Did you know?

  • The only part of your body that has no blood supply is the cornea of your eye. It receives its oxygen directly from the air around it.
  • The human brain has a memory capacity which is the equivalent of more than four terabytes on a hard drive. If you don’t know how much that is, just let me tell you that a terabyte is a lot of memory.
  • A newborn child can breathe and swallow at the same time for up to seven months. Don’t try it because you probably can’t do both at the same time.
  • Your skull, the bone that protects your brain is made up of 29 different bones.
  • Nerve impulses sent from your brain move at a speed of 274 km/h. That’s FAST!
  • A single human brain generates more electrical impulses in a day than all the telephones of the world combined. (THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE THEN TELL ME OUR BODY’S AREN’T GREAT.)
  • The average human body contains enough Sulphur to “kill all the fleas” on the average dog, enough carbon to make 900 pencils, enough potassium to fire a toy cannon and enough water to fill a 50-litre barrel. That equates to 11 gallons.
  • The human heart pumps 40,034,403.19 gallons of blood during the average lifetime. That is a good pump in my guesstimate.
  • 50,000 cells in your body died and were replaced by new ones while you were reading this sentence. That’s a ton of cells as well.
  • The human embryo acquires fingerprints within three months of conception.
  • Women’s hearts beat faster than men’s. Why? I have no idea.

What’s UP With January Anyway?

 

When I think of January, I usually think of the New Year, setting new goals, and of course, colder weather  As it turns out though, there’s a whole lot more to January than just those simple things!

When I began my researching today, I realized that not only is January a pretty cool month, (I know you knew that) it also doesn’t get nearly the credit that it deserves, so I’m going to share a few things with you in this January Newsletter that might help you realize what’s going on!

  1. January is named after the Roman god Janus, who was always shown as having two heads. I didn’t look him up on Google, but I’ll just take someone’s word on that fact. As the story goes, he looked back to the last year and forward to the new one.
  2. The Anglo-Saxons called January “Wulfmonath” as it was the month hungry wolves came scavenging at people’s doors. I’m pretty sure the wolves were cold and hungry, so they’d take just about anything they could get.
  3. There’s a rhyme and reason for everything. January is National Soup Month in the U.S. so if you eat a lot of soup, you’ll be celebrating National Soup Month.
  4. This is a little off the beaten track but the only Shakespeare plays that mention January are “Much Ado About Nothing” and “Winter’s Tale.” Remember, I’m just sharing some things with you here since it’s 2018. Now you know more than most people do about Shakespeare.
  5. This one might scare you if you’re married. More couples separate or divorce in January than in any other month. Why? I have no clue.
  6. Simple fact: January 1st is both the furthest away and closest day to December 31st.

New Years Jokes and Quotes

 

On New Year’s Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. Well, it was kind of embarrassing. As the clock struck, the bartender was almost crushed to death.

A drunken man comes inside a bar and says, “Happy New Year everybody.” and the waiter says, “We are in June you drunk man.” And the drunk man says, “Oh my god, my wife is going to kill me. I have never been so late in my life!”

If you’re born in September, its pretty safe to assume your parents started out the New Year with a Bang!

A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.

New Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.
Mark Twain

The things that we share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us.”

 Will You Gain Weight After the Holidays?

If you’re struggling with your weight, you probably want to read this. I talked about this last month, but now it’s January and time for you or a family member to really get serious about weight loss. Today I’m going to give you some simple reminders and pointers so hopefully you’ll take some notes, and act accordingly if you’re really ready to lose some weight.

A large number of people OVEREAT during the holidays. Why? I have no clue other than the food is usually outstanding, captivating, and very, very tasty.

Now here’s something you will want to hear. Reports of your holiday weight gain have been greatly exaggerated by a number of news outlets. People “say” they gain, on average, about five pounds during this time of year, but it all depends on how you’re eating and what times you’re eating. If you’re just eating salads, the chances of you gaining weight are very slim. I tell people to fast some during this time and then eat, but most do not have the so called willpower to do that.

I’ve discovered that the average weight gain during the holiday season in this community is around a pound. Yes, just one little old pound. Here’s why that is bad news, even if it sounds good to you right now.

Most people don’t ever lose that one little holiday pound they put on. That’s the BIG problem. The truth is, just because you gain just one pound, doesn’t mean you have to KEEP IT ON.

If you want to look good, feel good, move better, and think better, you’ll want to lose that one pound as fast as you can.

The average weight gain during adulthood is about one to two pounds PER year. If you’re say 40 years old, and you’ve been adding a pound or two per year — since you were twenty five years old, that would be a thirty pound weight gain since you started adding that extra ONE pound that they talk about.

If you are already overweight, the holidays are worse. Although the average weight gain is only a single pound, people who are already overweight tend to gain a lot more than someone that is not already heavy. Again, you already know this if you read last month’s newsletter, but there was one study that found that overweight people gained five pounds (5 big ones) or more during the holidays. That’s where the bad news is really apparent.

The average weight gain for the 94 students during the holidays was about one to two pounds.

Now you’re probably saying to yourself, “Doc you’ve already told me this. Why are you writing the same thing again?” The simple answer is this. I want to hold you accountable. If I do your chances of losing weight, especially those extra holiday pounds are a lot better.

Last month I told you, those students who were about a normal weight gained about a half a pound during the holiday season, but the students who were already foodies and overweight, gained about two pounds.

The holiday season doesn’t represent just one day of overeating. During the holidays there’s MORE alcohol consumed, there’s a whole lot MORE snacks eaten, and

MORE finger foods and appetizers given out that are bad for the middle part of your body. If you want to get started on getting rid of that ONE or TWO pounds… you just gained, talk to us about a proven weight loss program where we help you manage your weight the right way.

 

A SAFE WAY to LOSE

UP TO A POUND A DAY

How to fulfill your weight loss and health resolutions…Really!

Being overweight or obese is not just an image problem, it is a health problem. Weight gain has been linked to cancer, diabetes, diseases of the gall bladder, kidney, liver, primary cause of arthritis in the lumbar spine, hips and knees, as well as many other diseases. It can shorten your life expectancy by Years! To make things worse, the holidays add a permanent 1-2 pounds to your weight.                                                            

  Pre packaged processed meals and “diets” with fake brownies and diet soda won’t give you lasting weight loss.

We have the answer to help you lose up to a pound a day and also target the specific problem areas of fat accumulation you want to lose.

  • Metabolic Weight Program: We have a naturally based program that addresses all the factors necessary to allow your body to shed pounds of real fat quickly and safely.

Dr. Rugoff’s December Patient Newsletter

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Dr. Rugoff’s December Patient Newsletter
Dear Patients and Friends, 

 

The Holidays are upon us but I know a lot of patients complain about the gift giving, the long lines, and the stress of preparing everything, spending money, credit debt, etc. But you know what? It’s all about family, friends; the ones we love and care about. If you don’t have the money, don’t stress out. Make something, write something, or just be with your loved ones.

There are so many people that think GIVING THINGS is the most important part, and hey, if you want to share, that’s okay, but if you’re stressed out with giving, then please, rethink what you’re doing and make it meaningful.

I want you to know something. It’s still a great time of the year because you can be with people and friends that can make this Christmas your best Christmas ever. Think of it as something you’ll remember the rest of your life. Enjoy the day. Be with your family, and create memories.

It’s also the end of the year. I want you to reflect on this past year and start thinking about what was good and what wasn’t so good. What could you have done better? What can you do to improve the coming year? I’m not big on resolutions for the New Year. I am big on writing out what you would like to accomplish in the next year, goals and action steps. I know you are thinking that should be for next month’s newsletter but now is the time to start that process. Be ready, start January 1 hitting the ground running.

Interesting Christmas Facts

Christmas is perhaps the most anticipated event of the year. It is a time of good natured gift exchange, feasting and celebration. Nothing beats the fun and good times that can be experienced during the Yuletide season when you’re with your friends and family. Yet Christmas is not without its strange associations, a few of these have been listed below, some may even elicit a chuckle or two. Take the time to read these and understand that it’s a special time of this year…2017.

  •   Sending Christmas cards is still the in-thing to do around Christmas time. I do it, and I’m sure you probably do it as well. Americans on average send out 28 Christmas cards to friends and family yearly, and guess what? It’s certainly not in vain either. Most will receive 28 cards for the same amount of time.
  •   Christmas is a great time to exercise or at least start exercising. Here’s something to think about. You will walk an average of five miles between the parking lot and stores when you’re shopping, however, don’t let this give you a false sense of security, as most people still gain those pesky Christmas 1- 2 pounds despite this five miles.
  •   Leftovers can sometimes be your enemy. Spoiled leftovers are responsible for 400,000 cases of post Christmas associated illnesses. Be careful what you’re eating, and always smell it.
  •   Mince pie was said to be unlucky if cut with that pie with a knife. Additionally it was considered to encourage bad luck when eaten outside of the period between Christmas Eve and the Twelfth Night. The great thing about Mince pie to me however is that it somehow had the magical power to give you “good luck” if you ate one piece… every day… for the twelve days of Christmas. .
  •   Christmas Carols are great, right? Wrong, well at least according to some folks down in Pensacola, Florida who were outraged at the loud singing that accompanied the rendition of a few old favorites at a Mall during the Christmas season. Maybe it wasn’t so much the carols as the horrible singing that may have sullied the performance.
  •   “Pets are people too”, this may be what pet owners are thinking during the Christmas season. It has been estimated that at least 56 percent of Americans sing to their pets. It may just be more fulfilling considering that pets cannot possibly complain.
  •   The people at Reynolds et al make a substantial amount of money selling foil during the Yuletide season. It has been confirmed that at least 3000 tons of foil are used to wrap turkeys annually. The foil is light weight, but that is a ton of turkeys.


menorah blue
Let’s not Forget Hanukka, Hannukah, Chanukah

 

Chanukah or Ḥanukah) is a Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar. It is also known as the Festival of Lights and the Feast of Dedication.

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched menorah (also called a Chanukiah/Hanukiah), one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night.

Hanukkah festivities include playing dreidel and eating oil-based foods such as doughnuts and latkes(potato pancakes)…lots of latkes with sour cream or apple sauce.

  Hannukah Jokes and Proverbs

My mother once gave me two sweaters for Hanukkah. The next time we visited, I made sure to wear one. As we entered her home, instead of the expected smile, she said, “What’s the matter? You didn’t like the other one?”

“I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.” – Jewish Proverb

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
– Hanukkah Quotes by Buddha

  Will You Gain Weight During the Coming Holidays?

before and after

To me that’s a big question you might want to ponder. Why? Because it happens to a number of people during the upcoming holidays.

Now here’s something you might want to hear. Reports of your holiday weight gain have been greatly exaggerated by a number of news outlets. Media stories often suggest that the average person gains 7 to 10 pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas. And in surveys, people “say” they gain, on average, about five pounds during this time of year.

But several studies now show that the average weight gain during the winter holidays is just one to two pounds. Whew, I’m glad you read that. The news isn’t all good though and here’s why. Most people don’t ever lose the pound of weight they put on during the holidays, according to a report in The New England Journal of Medicine. That’s the problem. Just because you gain it, doesn’t mean you have to KEEP IT ON.

As you probably know the average weight gain during adulthood is about one to two pounds PER year, so that means much of midlife weight gain can be explained by your holiday eating. If you’re say 45 years old, and you’ve been adding a pound or 2 per year since you were twenty five years old, that would be a twenty pound weight gain since you started adding that extra

ONE pound. Take your age and when you started enjoying the holidays this way. I think you’ll see the correlation.

For people who are already overweight, the holiday weight news is worse. Although the average gain is only one pound, people who are already overweight tend to gain a lot more. Not what you wanted to hear right? Well stay with me. One study found that overweight people gained five pounds or more during the holidays. Yeow! That one hurts.

And there’s more. We as humans start packing on that extra pound of holiday weight early in life. Researchers at the University of Oklahoma studied holiday weight gain among college students during the Thanksgiving break. The students were weighed the day before Thanksgiving, then weighed again, about two weeks later.

The average weight gain for the 94 students was about one pound. Students who were of normal weight gained about a half a pound during the period. Students who were overweight, meaning their body mass index was 25 or more, gained about two pounds.

The lead researcher on the Oklahoma study, says Thanksgiving marks the beginning of a “high risk” time for the overweight. “I think the number of people who only overeat at the Thanksgiving meal is slim to none.”

“The holiday season doesn’t represent one day of overeating. You have this period that extends through the New Year… where there’s MORE alcohol, MORE snacks, MORE finger foods and appetizers that are energy dense.” If you want to get started on getting rid of that ONE or TWO pounds… and MORE, then talk to us about your weight loss program where we help you manage your weight the right way.

The Holidays are upon us and you want to look your best!

Being overweight or obese is not just an image problem, it is a health problem. The holidays just make the problem worse, since you never seem to lose that extra pound or two. Weight gain has been linked to cancer, diabetes, diseases of the gall bladder, kidney, liver, primary cause of arthritis in the lumbar spine, hips and knees, as well as many other diseases. It can shorten your life expectancy by Years!

 Pre packaged processed meals and “diets” with fake brownies and diet soda won’t give you lasting weight loss.

We have the answer to help you lose up to a pound a day and also target the specific problem areas of fat accumulation you want to lose.

  • Metabolic Weight Program: We have a naturally based program that addresses all the factors necessary to allow your body to shed pounds of real fat quickly and safely. Detoxification, metabolic balance, hormonal balance, as well as a natural approach to food selection. We even give you an easy “step by step” calendar to make the entire process easier. You have to change your habits not just go on a diet.

Avoiding the Cost of Holiday Cheer

It’s that time of year when some of us are foolish enough to overindulge in holiday spirit. Here are some tips to help:

  • Remember, for every ounce of alcohol consumed, you need an hour to burn it off. So, two drinks, you need two hours to sober up. Women absorb one third more alcohol than men in the same period of time and its takes longer to burn off (stay intoxicated longer). “Party alert” Ladies!

It’s the next morning and you have a nasty hangover. Cut a quarter of a fresh lemon and rub the juice side under each arm pit. It should ease the hangover. No, I’m not kidding. This is endorsed by many physicians as an “old time remedy”.

 End of the year reminder:

Are there changes to your personal information (address, phone numbers)? Have you changed insurance? Please let us know of any changes to your health coverage. This may include deductibles, plan changes or co-pay amounts. Don’t forget about using up your health flex accounts. We take health flex account cards. What a healthy way to use this account!

Healing Hands Newsletter for October, 2017

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands Newsletter for October, 2017

 

Healing hands

 

Dear Patients and Friends,

October is finally here. The weather will be cooling down, and the kids will be getting ready for Halloween. Don’t forget this one little thing when you’re handing out something at the door. The more sugar the children put into their bodies, the better their chance of getting a cold or becoming sick later. Your body does not need any kind of sugar, especially HFCS, (high fructose corn syrup) to survive and for little kiddos, you know the tiny ones… it’s even worse. Help them take care of their bodies by not allowing them to overload on sugar. Here’s what someone told me to do. Let them go out and collect their candy, etc. Then when they return home pull out a few dollars, and ask them to trade you CANDY for MONEY. If they take you up on it, take the candy to the car, and give it to someone that might take a little and not a lot. I’ve even talked to people that gave the candy to their bank. The bank employees would have it available for all their customer and they’ll remember you gave it to them. That’s what I call a WIN-WIN.

A Fact About Halloween You Do NOT Know

I don’t know about you, but there is a lot going on when it comes to Halloween. Here’s what I mean. More than 171,000,000 million Americans will celebrate Halloween this year, with seven out of ten consumers planning to hand out candy.

Total spending will most likely be far more than last year which was around $8.4 billion with a “B”, with the average consumer planning to spend $82.93 on decorations, candy, costumes and more. I don’t want to tell you this but that is a lot of money for one night with the witches and goblins.

“COOL FACTS”

for the Month of October and Halloween…

  • Chocolate candy bars top the list as the most popular candy for trick-or-treaters with Snickers pulling in the #1 slot.
  • Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.
  • Wow: Tootsie Rolls were the first wrapped penny candy in America.
  • The ancient Celts began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human during Halloween.
  • Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the fall harvest and black is associated with darkness. Ugh!
  • Pumpkins also come in white, blue and green. Great for unique monster carvings! I’ve also seen people carve out turnips. Not sure they think they taste as good, but if you can get that big a turnip, good luck.
  • Halloween candy sales average about 2 billion dollars annually in the United States.
  • Halloween is the 2nd most commercially successful holiday, with Christmas being the first. To me Christmas is much better.

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

An 80 year old couple were having problems remembering things, so they both decided to go to their doctor to get checked and make sure… nothing was wrong with them. When they arrived, they explained to the doctor about the problems they were having with their memories. After examining the couple the doctor told them that they were both… physically fit, but that they might want to start writing things down and making notes to help them remember the harder things.

The couple thanked the doctor, paid and left.

Later that night while watching TV, the older man got up from his chair and his wife asked, “Where are you going silly?” He replied, “To the kitchen.”

She asked, “Ralph, since you are headed to the kitchen, will you get me a bowl of ice cream while you’re there?” He replied, “Sure honey.” She then asked him, “Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember?”

He said, “No, I can remember that Mary.”

She then said, “Well I would also like some fresh strawberries on top hun. You had better write that down because I know you’ll forget that if you don’t.” He said, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with fresh strawberries.” She replied, “Well I also would like whipped cream on top of the strawberries. I know you will forget that too… so you better write it down as well.”

With irritation in his voice, he said, “Mary, I don’t need to write anything down! I can remember exactly what you just said.”

He then fumes into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes he returns from the kitchen and hands her a plate of bacon and eggs.

She stared at the plate for a moment and said angrily: “I TOLD you to write it down! You forgot my toast!”

October Quotes

Then summer fades and passes and October comes.  We’ll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure.”   –   Thomas Wolfe

Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll. ~Anonymous

Summer makes me drowsy. Autumn makes me sing. Winter’s pretty lousy, but I hate Spring. ~ Dorothy Parker

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad. ~Edwin Way Teale

 Why Is Chiropractic So Important

To the Entire Family?

   I’m sure you know that if you want to be as healthy as you can be you should spend the majority of your life getting adjusted. Here’s what most people do however. They go when they hurt, and when they don’t hurt, they don’t go. They rely upon their symptoms to tell them if they’re sick or not. No symptoms means they are healthy right? That’s all wrong, but I’ll go over that in a future newsletter.

You have a cell phone don’t you? Here’s something you heard from me that you’ll want to remember. Keep the cell phone away from your body. Not just your head, every part of your body. It’s terrible and having it next to your head all the time can cause things like cancer, brain problems, etc. ( They say they’re safer..They don’t really know 100%).

Your brain is home-base for everything that happens in your body, and all the nerves in the body are the telephone lines. When you get pain, tingling, or numbness, anywhere in your body there is usually one good source of nerve irritation. That means inflammation.

When your spinal vertebrae (back bones) are misaligned this causes irritation to the nerves at that level. This then can cause muscle tension, muscle spasm, lots of bad inflammation, and pain all along that inflamed nerve. So where are those nerves going? To your finger, intestine, ear, somewhere in your head? (Nerves are everywhere but a large portion of them are NOT pain sensitive. That means you can have issues and feel great, and be symptom FREE.)

The fact that irritation is present causes dysfunction. That dysfunction can mean headaches, indigestion, tightness in your chest, sciatica, and tingling in your fingers or toes to name a few plus it can mean that you might not feel anything. If that irritation is left alone, and you say take aspirin and just cover up the symptoms… this can lead to you have a much more serious condition down the road.

Now for my point. While I believe chiropractic can help LOTS of problems, your job as my patient is to constantly challenge me! What does that mean? Let me tell you. I want you to tell me about a new (or old) problem anytime you’re in the office… so that I can help. Bring your kiddos in to get “checked out.” With all the falls and run-ins they take, their little bodies need to be working at 100% when growing up. I’ve found that most parents neglect getting their children checked. Not because they’re bad, just because they don’t think there is anything wrong.

One last point. In case I haven’t told you this before, each adjustment I give you… boosts your immune system. Here’s what happens. Your white blood cells increase in number over the next 24 hours after your adjustment. This can be crucial when you are sick or are starting to feel sick. So don’t be afraid to keep that appointment when you are sick. It may be just the boost you need to get better – quickly.

Chiropractic care at this office is more than just getting your back “cracked.” It really is a lifestyle change. I hope that you can see why it is important to use chiropractic for more than just back pain, neck pain, etc.

Stop Removing Chicken Skin,

it’s Actually Good for You

If you’re health conscious, you’ve probably heard that you should always pass on the chicken skin; while flavorful, it’s just added fat, which contributes to weight gain, higher blood pressure, and other risk factors for illness. The short of it is, chicken skin isn’t all bad for your health.

Believe it or not, there are some health benefits from eating chicken skin; this has been researched and proven by health experts from Harvard. According to their studies, the oft-feared chicken skin can actually help your heart.

What do the avocado and chicken skin have in common? Unsaturated fat.chicken

Unsaturated fat is actually beneficial to heart health because it helps to lower blood pressure as well as cholesterol, which decreases the risk of heart disease.

If you’re concerned about a huge jump in calories, don’t be. The difference between a skinless serving of chicken compared to one cooked with the skin on is around 50 calories. The flavor chicken skin adds, might even allow you to pass on excess salt, which has very real negative effects on your body.

You may also be thinking of all the grease you’ll be putting into your body. Fortunately, chicken skin actually works as a barrier.  The skin prevents excess oil from entering the meat of the chicken by absorbing it before it can soak in.

Even if you aren’t completely convinced, it’s still beneficial to cook chicken with the skin, to absorb excess oil, and then discard it before dining. Either way, if you make sure to cook your chicken in healthy oil, to begin with, you can definitely cut down on potentially harmful substances entering your body. Olive oil is a good choice.

Like everything else, moderation is the key when it comes to chicken skin. It shouldn’t be eaten in excess, but it does provide some omega-3 fats, which benefit the body. It also contains some omega-6, which can have adverse health effects. Chicken skin certainly shouldn’t be on the menu every day, but it won’t hurt, occasionally, as part of a balanced diet.

Healing Hands – September 2017

Dear Patients and Friends,

School is back in session. That means the streets will be busier in the mornings and the evenings again. Kids today are immersed in technology. They are plugged in and tuned out to the world around them. Texting, listening to music, selfies or on tweeter. They are, for the most part, oblivious to traffic and other hazards. You need to be more diligent and aware of them when driving.

The most amazing machine in the history of the ‘natural’ world is the HUMAN BODY. Here’s why I’m telling you that in this newsletter. If you were to purchase this machine (if that were even possible, which it is not) it would cost you billions of dollars. I know you may have a lot of money, but you’re still not a Bill Gates, or Warren Buffett. In fact, that would be more money than you’ll ever have (most likely). But let’s say you borrowed it from your local bank. Once you brought that human body home, you would treat it reverently because of the cost, wouldn’t you?

However, even though it’d be special and valuable… your body you now have is still something you most likely take for granted, and pay ‘little attention’ to until you develop what we call symptoms.

I want to remind you of its spectacular abilities. I want you to think about what would happen if there was some interference to your nervous system (the system that controls all your bodily functions on a daily basis) and how important those functions are to you!!! Make sure you get checked on a regular basis. It might save you some pain.

JOKES of the MONTH

Johnny: I think we need a new teacher.
Mom: Why is that?
Johnny: Our teacher doesn’t know anything, she keeps asking us for the answers.

==================================

TIME TO HEAL

One of the first questions a lot of my patients ask me about chiropractic is: “How long is this going to take me to heal up doc?” This is a good question, but just let me say this.

Some drug treatments are prescribed for a lifetime. Things like diabetic drugs and blood pressure drugs. When you are given the prescription, the medical doctor usually says, “You’re going to be on these the rest of your life.”

Now let me say something about your healthcare and chiropractic. I don’t want you to expect me to UNDO years of dis-ease in a single visit. You might feel better in one visit, but I want you to know, I’m not the one that does the real healing. Your body is the healer. Symptoms always come last and disappear first.

I’ll try to tell you how long it might take before you achieve maximum correction, but if you really want to make a change in your life, you’ll want to stay under some kind of chiropractic care the rest of your life. Kind of like brushing your teeth. You just do it.

The latest research shows that 18 months is a bare minimum, but once you’ve reached that stage, things really change internally. You’re going to be feeling a lot better after a few weeks or even days, but if you’re looking for long lasting benefits, you’ll need to have an adjustment regularly for the rest of your life.

Your long term care at this office is based on three things:

 

  1. I’ll look at your objective findings, and your diagnostic findings, and then…
  2. I’ll use my experience with other patients who’ve had similar nerve interference patterns.
  3. Then I’ll consider those characteristics that are unique to you, including your age, how long you’ve had your nerve interference, your general health history, genetic factors, emotional stress, job activities, exercise regimen, water intake, weight and your diet.

The real SECRET is to be “patient with your care”. Work with me and be very honest about how you feel about your care. The better your doctor/patient interaction with me, the better your healing experience.

Quotes

 

“Our fear of death is like our fear that summer will be short, but when we have had our swing of pleasure, our fill of fruit, and our swelter of heat, we say we have had our day.
–   John Donne, 1620

In memory of our fallen this and every September 11th; may God bless each of them. We will never forget our lost children of freedom.

 

Who Are You If You’re Born This Month?

Classified as ‘perfectionists’, people born in the month of September are extremely hard working. They are detail-oriented and organized and are almost perfect in whatever they do.

Their only problem is that they like to point out other people’s mistakes and criticize them even for trivial matters. Otherwise, they are calm and composed individuals and generally excel in the professions such as medicine, law, teaching, writing and designing.

Stress and Belly Fat

I have a little science lesson for you about your “belly fat” hormone, also known as cortisol.  Cortisol is a hormone that your body releases to deal with stress, and unfortunately high levels of cortisol have been linked to increased levels of abdominal fat.

Want to reduce cortisol and burn more belly flab?  Here are 3 things that you can do starting today:

1. Work less – New research shows that if you work more than 48 hours per week, the likelihood of consuming excess alcohol goes up dramatically.  Alcohol consumption increases cortisol, and together they both increase belly fat. If you’re looking to shrink your belly, trimming back your working hours while choosing calorie-burning exercise for stress relief (in lieu of alcohol) will do wonders for your waistline.

2. Don’t consume caffeine after 6PM – Although caffeinated beverages can enhance fat-burning when consumed around exercise, caffeine can be a double whammy on cortisol levels, especially if consumed at night when it’s very likely to negatively affect the quality of your sleep.  Getting quality, uninterrupted sleep each night is critical to reducing cortisol, so you’ll want to avoid caffeine in the evening hours.

3. Take time to “unplug” – A recent Canadian study showed that those who were constantly “plugged in” to technology all throughout the day (TV, smart phones, computers) were significantly more stressed than those who took time to “unplug” during designated time blocks each day.  More stress = more belly fat, so if you want a trim belly start planning some device-free time each day.

Why Instant Rice May Be Healthier Than Regular Rice

 

You probably already know that, generally speaking, brown rice is a healthier option than white rice.  It contains more fiber, vitamins and minerals while also having a lower glycemic index.

You’ve probably also heard that the “slow cook” version of brown rice is much healthier than the “instant” versions, which have been pre-cooked to allow for faster cooking times.  After all, anything that’s “easy” has to give you some sort of health trade off, doesn’t it?  So perhaps like many looking to obtain a trim, tight waistline, you labor over the stove for 45 mins to prepare your healthy brown rice.

But alas, this simply isn’t true.  Did you know that many brands of “instant” brown rice contain just as much fiber as regular brown rice and have even been tested to have a lower glycemic index than regular versions?  In fact, the ONLY brands of brown rice to score a glycemic index in the 40’s are ALL instant!  The regular versions generally score in the 60 – 80s range.

Now, with that said, this same “quick cook” phenomenon doesn’t apply to other foods like oatmeal, where the glycemic index generally increases significantly when comparing instant versions vs their regular counterparts.

But when it comes to brown rice, it seems that there is little negative trade off and actually some positive benefits to gain with a lower glyce mic index.  Not to mention, it’s ready in a few minutes instead of nearly an hour!

Dear  Patients and Friends,

Hello again. I’m going to really have some fun this month. First of all, it’s HOT out there. I know its August and all of that, but you need to be thinking ahead and preparing for cooler weather soon enough. It’s already August and January seems like it was such a long time ago. Must be my age, but hey, I am trying to decrease my age, the older I get.

 

 

“COOL FACTS”

for the HOT Summer in August…
  • Your tongue is the only muscle in your body that is attached at only ‘one’ end.
  • Ninety percent of all volcanic activity occurs in the oceans. In 1993, scientists located the largest known concentration of active volcanoes on the sea floor in the South Pacific. This area, the size of New York State, hosts 1,133 volcanic cones and sea mounts. Two or three could erupt at ANY moment.
  • The highest tides in the world are at the Bay of Fundy, which separates New Brunswick from Nova Scotia. At some times of the year the difference between high and low tide is 53 feet 6 inches, the equivalent of a three-story building.
  • The oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and contain 97 percent of the Earth’s water. Less than *1 percent is fresh water, and 2-3 percent is contained in glaciers and ice caps.  
  • Earth’s longest mountain range is the Mid-Ocean Ridge, which winds around the globe from the Arctic Ocean to the Atlantic, skirting Africa, Asia and Australia, and crossing the Pacific to the west coast of North America. It is four times longer than the Andes, Rockies, and Himalayas combined.
  • Canada has the longest coastline of any country, at 56,453 miles or around 15 percent of the world’s 372,384 miles of coastlines.
  • A slow cascade of water beneath the Denmark Strait sinks 2.2 miles, more than 3.5 times farther than Venezuela’s Angel Falls, the tallest waterfall on land.
  • At the deepest point in the ocean the pressure is more than “8 tons per square inch”, or the equivalent of one person trying to support 50 jumbo jets.
  • At 39 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature of almost the entire deep ocean is only a few degrees “above” freezing.
  • If mined, all the GOLD suspended in the world’s seawater would give each person on Earth 9 pounds of the pretty stuff. Talk about having money saved.
  • 50% of all regular long-term smokers will be killed by their habit.
  • China began producing toilet paper in 1391
  • The Japanese Spider Crab is the largest crustacean in the world
  • The first product to have a bar code was Wrigley’s gum
  •  Drinking alcohol lowers the body temperature
  •  A group of frogs is called an army

 

CHIROPRACTIC STORY


“My problems began quite unexpectedly. I bent down one day but couldn’t stand up straight again.

At 52, I’m very active. I play a lot of tennis and my job requires me to bend and twist in some awkward positions, especially when I have to squeeze through the small openings in some of the places I work.

Five days after the problem began, I was still suffering agonizing low back pain. I wasn’t able to do anything.

I took the recommendations of several friends and went to see my chiropractor who did an exam and took X-rays. I was told that the problem was in my spine; and the doctor explained the spine’s direct relation to my general health.

When I came a few weeks ago, I couldn’t even reach my knees with my hands. Now, I can touch my toes without bending my knees, which I haven’t been able to do for more years than I can remember. I can’t thank this doctor enough.

— Jonathan

 

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

 The top 10 things you do NOT want to hear in surgery.

 

  1.   Don’t worry. I think it is sharp enough.
  2.   Nurse, did this patient sign the organ donation card?
  3.   Darn it! Page 84 of the manual is missing!
  4.   Everybody stand back! I lost a contact lens!
  5.   Hand me that…uh…that uh…..thingie
  6.   Better save that. We’ll need it for the autopsy.
  7.   “Accept this sacrifice”
  8.   Whoa, wait a minute, if this is his spleen, then what’s that over there?
  9.   Ya know, there’s big money in kidneys.
  10.  What does that mean when that thing is not connected?

August is…Foot Health Month


read this

The human foot is a biological masterpiece as is every part of your body. Its strong, flexible, and functional design enables it to do its job well and without complaint — if you take care of it and don’t take it for granted. Just like your spine.


The foot can be compared to
a finely tuned race car, or a space shuttle, vehicles whose function dictates their design and structure. And like them, the human foot is complex, containing within its relatively small size 26 bones (the two feet contain a quarter of all the bones in the body), 33 joints, and a network of more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, to say nothing of blood vessels and nerves.

Tons of Pressure
The components of your feet work together, sharing the tremendous pressures of daily living. An average day of walking, for example, brings a force equal to several hundred tons to bear on the feet. This helps explain why your feet are more subject to injury than any other part of your body.

Foot ailments are among the most common of our health problems. Although some can be traced to heredity, many stem from the cumulative impact of a lifetime of abuse and neglect. Studies show that 75 percent of Americans experience foot problems of a greater or lesser degree of seriousness at some time in their lives; nowhere near that many seek medical treatment, apparently because they mistakenly believe that discomfort and pain are normal and expectable.

There are a number of systemic diseases that are sometimes first detected in the feet, such as diabetes, circulatory disorders, anemia, and kidney problems. Arthritis, including gout, often attacks foot joints first.

Specialized Care

In order to keep your feet healthy, you should be familiar with the most common ills that affect them. Remember, though, that self treatment can often turn a minor problem into a major one, and is generally not advisable. Make sure that you have the proper shoes, and the proper orthotic. If you want more information, just let me know on your visit.

Healing Hands – July 2017

Dear Friends and Patients,

I was thinking about July the other day and I thought I’d find out a few facts about the 4th of July. I didn’t know this, but the Declaration of Independence was not signed by all representatives until August, 1776. To make it official, John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress signed it. Now, can you guess where the saying “put your John Hancock on it” came from?

The Fourth of July is not complete without parades, beer, hot dogs, and fireworks. Fireworks are enjoyed by almost everyone including me and I’ll drive somewhere just to see a fireworks display. You should have your choice of several locations in your area on the Fourth, or even the day before. Be respectful and go out and support one.

Happy Birthday, America!!!!!

“COOL FACTS”

for the Fourth of July…

 

*  On June 24, 1826, Thomas Jefferson sent a letter to Roger C. Weightman, declining an invitation to come to Washington, D.C., to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It was the last letter that Jefferson, who was gravely ill, ever wrote.

*  Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on Independence Day, July 4, 1826. declaration

*  The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence did not sign at the same time, nor did they sign on July 4, 1776. The official event occurred on August 2, 1776, when 50 men signed it. (Getting that many signers to show up all at once was probably a big thing back then if you know what I mean.)

The names of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were withheld from the public for more than six months to protect the signers. If independence had not been achieved, the treasonable act of the signers would have, by law, resulted in their deaths. (Things were a lot different back then. They took a big chance signing that document.)

*  Thomas McKean was the last to sign in January, 1777. (They didn’t have the internet, or they could have signed that way for sure.)

The origin of Uncle Sam probably began in 1812, when Samuel Wilson was a meat packer who provided meat to the US Army. The meat shipments were stamped with the initials, U.S. Someone joked that the initials stood for “Uncle Sam”. This joke eventually led to the idea of Uncle Sam symbolizing the United States government. (Believe it or not Uncle Sam is seen in a good way a lot of times, and a bad way some of the time.)

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

 

Many years ago, my father visited America, from Europe, for the very first time. He wanted to go with me to the supermarket, so I invited him along.

Going up and down the aisles with me, he asked questions about things he saw.

“Vas diss?? Powdered orange juice??” he asked.

I said, “Yes, Dad, you just add a little water, and you have fresh orange juice.”

A few minutes later, in a different aisle, he blurted out, “Und vas dis?? Powdered milk?”

I said, “Yes, Dad, you just add a little water, and you have fresh milk!”

A few minutes later, in a different aisle, he yelled out, “Und give a look here!! Baby Powder!! Vat a country, vat a country!”

CHIROPRACTIC STORY

“I have been seeing my chiropractor for terrible foot pain during hiking. It turned out that I was totally out of alignment, my hips were not level, one leg was longer than the other, and I had some neck bones way out of alignment, as well as one near where my back pack was carried. The problem was not in my foot as I thought, it was my entire body that was misaligned and compensating by making my muscles tight all over.

I had an appointment 2 days ago. He tested my nerves in my neck. They have to do with eye movement, smiling and frowning. He did the adjustment.

Now comes the really good part. I have low blood pressure, normally 80-90/50 and very bad circulation. I have to move at night because my arms fall asleep and I am unable to move them. If I lean on my arm, or cross my legs, I lose feeling and can’t move them. I always thought this was an overgrowth of my candida, and I know the problem gets worse when I eat sugar or wheat.

The night of my adjustment I slept really well and had dreams which I can actually remember! And guess what? No circulation problems! I looked up the nerves he worked on and sure enough, one of them was related to my blood pressure!

So I tested this yesterday by eating some organic cookies! That should have made it worse. But no, I slept really well! My hands are warmer! I can cross my legs! I’m leaning on my elbow while I write this without losing circulation! I took my BP this morning out of curiosity, and it was 117/75! Woo Hoo!

Amazing! Hard to believe I went for foot pain, and something totally unexpected happened! Why didn’t I know that sooner? I never would have guessed, because my neck did not hurt.

Weight loss Update

As I mentioned in earlier newsletters, I have added a new supplement to enhance your energy, fat burning metabolism and weight loss. Losing a pound a day has never been easier. This new supplement combines MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) found in coconut and a formula which puts your body in a ketosis state. This is where your body uses fat (ketone bodies), not carbohydrate burning for energy. You may have read how MCT has been used to help brain function, mood, brain fog, Alzheimer’s and cognitive function.  Ketone metabolism has been used by athletes to help increase energy and endurance, as well as help them keep a muscular lean body. Maintaining a state of ketosis (not the same as diabetic ketosis which is a serious disease condition) reduces inflammation, helps keep a steadier blood sugar level throughout the day, helps improve muscle tissue, athletic performance, moods, cognitive function and helps with weight loss.

If you would like to know more about this ketone supplement, call the office.

Please Note: I have a lot of patients ask about the Red light Fat loss Process. Many of you, who have been thinking about it, then see a friend or relative who tried it and see how effective it is and are upset when you find out we are booked solid for the next few weeks. You have pretty much lost the summer if you wanted to try it. The fact is, it is in very high demand. I try to give my patients first chance for appointments. Unfortunately, we are already booked up into mid July. We have a cancellation waiting list a mile long. If you even think you want to experience an introductory session, you must commit and call to reserve your appointment, now.

Weeds Can Cause You A Lot of PAIN

 

After a long winter, there are a lot of people that are itching to get outside and enjoy the festivities that accompany spring.  Believe it or not, one of those activities enjoyed by many is gardening; however, individuals often anticipate the aches and pains that come along with it. I don’t know about you but when I do weeds, I’m bending over for long periods of time, I’m twisting, pulling, jerking, and this plays havoc on my lower back and arms. Listed below are a few tips and tricks to help you prevent injury and care for the health of your back.


Warm-up

Wow. Most people don’t understand that gardening is a vigorous activity and because of this your body needs to be properly warmed up.  It’s no surprise injuries arise when suddenly we are asking our bodies to twist, turn, lift, and pull after being less active during the winter months.  Going for a short 5-10 minute walk or stretching prior to gardening can significantly decrease your risk of back pain!

Pace Yourself

Spring and summer fill up fast between graduation parties, golf tournaments, weddings, lake days, and the list goes on.  All of a sudden you look at your calendar and you have one weekend left open and a big gardening job ahead!  Set realistic goals about what you want accomplished, pace yourself, and take frequent breaks to stretch and hydrate. Water is super important to your health.

Body Mechanics

If possible, raise the garden off the ground or user planters to avoid bending over.  If you must bend, don’t bend at the waist and reach.  Instead, position yourself close to the ground and cushion your knees.  There are also garden tools with long handles available to help avoid the reaching motion.  When it comes to lifting heavy pots, bushes, or watering cans use a wheel barrow to help make transferring these heavy objects easier and remember to lift using the strength of your legs.

Switch it up

By alternating activities your body can switch up its posture and which muscles are being stressed often helping to avoid those repetitive-motion injuries.  Divide your tasks up into smaller sections that allow your body to change position and give muscles a break. If it’s good for patients, it’s good for doctors as well.

Visit us today if you’re going to do any gardening. We can help identify and treat most underlying spinal problems that could predispose your body to injury or make those gardening aches and pains worse.  Being proactive about your spinal health will help ensure you continue to enjoy the joys and benefits of gardening.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing pain while gardening, tell them to give us a call; 518-489-2628
